As part of our commitment to community dialogue, self-reflection and strategic analysis, ARC does and/or commissions researches aiming at contributing to strengthening global LGBTI advocacy.
Some of these explore the impact the Universal Periodic Review mechanism has had on States and civil society to raise and make progress on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression and sex characteristics issues at the national level. Other ones assess SOGII advocacy at the UN, including challenges, successes and next steps. Another one evaluates ARC’s own role, including positive contributions, areas where our work could be strengthened and possible future directions.
Some of them are joint researches, some of them are only ARC ones. We look forward to engaging in dialogue on how the findings can contribute to strengthening global LGBTI advocacy.
